The Typewriter Database 197X Triumph Gabriele 25 Serial # A 301.03005 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 197X Triumph Gabriele 25 Serial # A 301.03005 "Cannon Fodder"

This reliable workhorse quickly became one of my favorites for pounding out reliable text. It will also be the first of my nearly 50 typers that I will sell. It is extremely satisfying to type on but space limitations are moving my collection toward earlier machines. Thank you Triumph for the memories! Sold in Tokyo June 13, 2016.

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
